The BIG Question

So someone asked the big question that's traditional at this time of year... What do you want most for Christmas? That's an easy one to answer, though I know I won't get it. I want to celebrate the holiday with all four of my beautiful children (who, honestly, aren't really children anymore). We haven't been all together for Christmas since 2002. Sigh... I can wish, though, and celebrate with them in spirit... Maybe one day we'll all be together again, if even just for a few hours. Now THAT would be the ultimate Christmas gift.

Anyway, today begins the Christmas crafting in earnest. I've got a couple of Christmas parties at work (it's part of my job to do holy-day celebrations, yay!) and teacher gifts to make, as well as gifts for my fellow staff members. The parties are this weekend. Have I begun prepping...? Of course not! They'd revoke my Procrastinators Club membership card if I started more than two or three days ahead, ha ha! I do have all the supplies, so "all" I have to do is put everything together. Thank God for my creative crafting daughter, Kat. She and I will be busy little bees over the next couple of days!

Hope you're all enjoying your Advent season and Christmas preparations. Peace be with you.

I know what you mean about your children. My daughter will be 1500 miles away this year and I miss her terribly all the time, but I know Christmas will be rough. I am enjoying the crafting leading up to the event though!
